We kick things off with our first ever Guild Spotlight with Sablehawk the guild leader of Heroic Dead!
Telara Central: Does your guild have a website? For those that have never visited your site, please introduce it to us.
Sablehawk: Yes we do, our website is located at: https://www.heroicdead.com
Telara Central: When was your guild first established, and was the guild started specifically for Rift: Planes of Telara or does the guild have an online presence in other games?
Sablehawk: The Heroic Dead was established on May 12, 2010 and while the guild was created specifically for Rift: Planes of Telara most of our current members are actually friends from The Mistwalkers which goes all the way back to Horizons. So we’ve known each other for 7 years now roughly.
Adam Gershowitz takes us through the gameplay of Rift: Planes of Telara. Enjoy!
We’ve had our eye on Rift: Planes of Telara for some time now, especially after getting a little face time with the game back in April. Fortune smiles upon us all once more as Trion Worlds made the trek to E3 to showcase this gorgeous fantasy title. Shouldering our way to the front of the line — hey, hey, I’m reporting here! — we took the wheel of an interactive demo while the developers were kind enough to answer a few questions about Rift.
Your very first decision in game will be to choose a faction: the Guardians or the Defiant. Both are tasked with saving a world under attack, although they each have their own approach and butt heads against the other in the process. The Guardians are blessed by the gods and are chosen to be their holy knights, while the Defiant take the anti-hero route and rely on their own technology to wage this war. The Defiant had created vast cities in the desert using their magical tech, but they were infiltrated by dragons and saw their great achievements wiped away, reducing them to desert wanderers. There are races unique to each faction, as well as races shared by both. We learned that the Defiant have access to both the Eth (human) and Bahmi (human/elemental) races.
